Course summary

Overview

We seek highly motivated individuals with an appropriate academic background (generally a Distinction at MSc level in a finance-related subject) from a good university. We encourage applied and relevant research and our strong connections with many financial firms allow students to gain industry experience during their doctoral research, if they wish.

The ICMA Centre will have up to four funded places available for September 2021 entry. Candidates interested in applying should list the Henley Business School Scholarship in the funding section of their application. Successful candidates will receive research training, will be required to take relevant University courses on teaching and embed that learning by acting as teaching assistants.

Recent PhD graduates have secured academic positions at UK Universities such as Oxford, Manchester, Kings College London, Cardiff, Bath, Sussex, Surrey and East Anglia. Academic roles have also extended to international universities such as ESCP Europe, Hamburg, University College Dublin and Goethe University of Frankfurt.

PhD graduates have taken industry positions at employers such as Allianz, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, London Business Bank, NAFMII, Oxford Risk and Sociovestix Labs.
